Party Place in Brooklyn

I'm putting this posting up for two reasons:
1) To relate my mixed experience at Burrito Bar in Park Slope
2) To ask for suggestions for future restaurants/venues for big parties.

My husband recently got a big promotion and I wanted to congratulate him with a big "surprise!" party. I couldn't think of any place but Burrito Bar to go. I should have posted here first for suggestions but have been slammed with work, etc. So I just put the word out and let it happen.

The surprise was perfect. The atmosphere was great at Burrito Bar. Our waiter was a doll. My husband actually found out he's from Peru and studying to be a food scientist.

The food couldn't have been more awful. The chips were dry and stale. The salsa seemed generic, definitely store-bought. The guacamole came in those huge mortar/pestle things but was not prepared in them and the avocados tasted...old. I ordered a grilled veg burrito. Not good. Other signs of badness was that not one person finished their entree. It's not b/c they were too big either.

The margaritas was fine. The sangria, okay. But I stuck to their beers on tap of which they have a pretty good variety. Ditto with the tequila list.

So, there's my review of Burrito Bar. I did see someone give a thumbs up to this place on chowhound so I decided to not judge this restaurant by its cover. I don't really regret last night but I'm looking to not repeat this mistake.

Does anyone have suggestions for a laid-back restaurant for big, loudish parties in the Slope or its environs?
